If someone filed an accusation against you, it may compromise your career and a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
On or about September 18, 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Austin, the LVN failed to assess a patient after the resident fell. Additionally, the LVN failed to notify the physician or her supervisor of the resident’s fall. Subsequently, the resident was not assessed or medicated for pain for approximately six (6) hours. The resident was then diagnosed with a left hip fracture and sent to the hospital.
This conduct by the LVN was likely to injure the patient from a delay in treatment for the hip fracture.
In response to the incident, the LVN states that she was told not to document falls due to the patient’s care plan. She states that around 12:45 am a resident came to the nurse’s station and stated that the resident was on the kitchen floor asleep. The LVN states that she went to the kitchen, and the resident was on the floor asleep on her left side. She states that the patient was assisted back into her wheelchair and transferred to her bed. She states that she tried to assess the patient, and offered the patient pain medication. She states that the resident denied the need for both. The LVN states that the resident denied any needs and would not allow the nurse and certified nurse’s aides to take vitals.
The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse attorney could have helped the case become better for the LVN.
Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing found the LVN’s conduct was grossly negligent. Thus, the LVN was found guilty and her LVN license was disciplined and suspended.
She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney.
